Wie soziale Medien reguliert werden könnten – Ist Frankreich ein Vorbild?

Background Discussion

To tackle disinformation and hate speech in social networks, search engines and video portals, governments in Europe have mostly relied on voluntary self-regulatory measures by the platforms. However, in light of the many flaws with self-regulation, regulatory interventions are now being considered, for example at the European Commission, in France and Great Britain. The most far-reaching ideas so far have been put forth by a commission for the French government, which, among other things, suggests creating a supervisory body for social media.

What do the French regulatory proposals look like in detail, which problems can they really solve and what could be applied to Germany? I will discuss these questions with computer scientist Serge Abiteboul on November 27, 2019 at 6:30 pm. As a member of a small group of experts, Serge Abiteboul helped to develop the French proposal.

The discussion will be held in English.
